Treat your furry friends to a nutty, carob coated snack made with peanut butter! Make ahead and freezer friendly!
- 4 cups Oat Flour, more as needed
- 2/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup natural peanut butter
- 2 whole eggs
- 6 ounces carob chips
- 1/2 cup chopped unsalted peanuts
- Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees.
- Combine the oat flour, peanut butter, applesauce and eggs in a large bowl. Mix thoroughly.
- If the dough is sticky, add a little oat flour until you can handle the dough without it sticking to your hands.
- Transfer dough to a flat surface and roll out to about 1/4 inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut our your shapes.
- Transfer onto a baking sheet lined with baking mat or parchment paper.
- Bake 20-25 minutes until the cookies are dry and starting to darken at the edges.
- Cool biscuits completely on a wire rack.
- Place nuts in a shallow dish or plate. Set aside.
- Toss carob chips into a shallow dish. Using a microwave or over double boiler, heat the carob chips until just starting to melt. Quickly stir until all chips are melted and carob is smooth.
- Working quickly, dip one end of dog biscuit into carob, top only, to coat. Immediately roll in chopped nuts. Press down on nuts to anchor. Place on tray or wire rack to cool and allow carob to harden.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
Treats can be frozen, packed in airtight container for up to 3 months.

The recipe ingredients are considered safe for dogs, but as with humans, it’s always a good idea to make sure there are no canine allergies or sensitivities to any of the ingredients.
